Usually targeting mainstream consumers and business users, Samsung made a bold move at this year’s Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. They are broadening their horizons and are determined to win the hearts of gamers with their newest device. Samsung have announced that they are planning to enter the profitable market of gaming notebooks with its new 7 series line, starting with the high-performance 700G7A notebook.
There hasn’t been an official confirmation from Samsung but rumors say that it is built around a massive Full HD LED display of 17.3 inch. This oversized notebook uses an Intel Core i7 processor locked at 2GHz, an AMD Radeon HD 6790 video card boasting 2GB of video memory, 16GB of RAM, a 1.5 TB HDD and 8GB flash storage space for Express Cache. Other features include USB 3.0, a Blu-ray drive and VGA and HDMI outputs that will turn out to be very useful if you have a big TV.
Furthermore, the impressive Samsung notebook also comes equipped with a high definition camera, a 7-in-1 card reader and a 9 cell battery – Samsung have yet to reveal the battery life of its brand new notebook. From a design point of view, the stretches around to the display bezel and the lid are covered with a glossy finish while the full-size backlit keyboard with its blue and white backlighting keys is visually appealing. The specifications of the 700G7A notebook are pretty fantastic and Samsung – which is best known for creating slim devices – could gain new fans.
Priced at $2,577, the 700G7A will hit European stores in September.
